Hi, I did a search but couldn't find what I am looking for. I am a newbie. I record pickup basketball using 2 different iphones. One pointing to one end of the court, the other pointing the to the other end. Is there an easy way to edit the video so that I don't have to cut and move the clips? Meaning kinda have them overlay and edit where the action is happening? I'm not sure if I'm making any sense. LOL.

Hi delanceyj

Welcome to the forum

Yeah, you're making sense, I can see what you're trying to do

Multi camera editing would be a useful feature. I believe it is on the 'to do' list but is not being worked on yet

If I’m reading you right, you could simply put one camera angle on track layer one, and place and sync the second on track layer two. What I would do is LOCK layer one, then use the scissors tool to cut snippets out of the clip on layer two as needed. That would essentially give you two camera angles, “synced” on your timeline, but cutting between them seamlessly.

Again, that’s if I’m reading you right.

That makes sense, I think. So I would have my 2 clips loaded. Lock one layer, edit the other layer. Then lock the 2nd layer and edit the first? I'll have to figure out how to lock it..

Not quite. Here’s what I’m saying…

Let’s say you’ve shot an interview, a talking head, with two cameras. One is a wide shot of the subject, the other a close-up on their face. Put the wide shot (camera A) on track one (the lowest track), and the close-up (camera B) on track two (the next track up). Now, if you lock track one, and cut segments out of track two, you’ll reveal track one below it, letting you cut between the two without ever cutting what’s on track one.

Now, if you have a basketball game, and all you want to do is cut between the two angles, I’d put one angle on track one, and think of this as your “master shot”. If you put the other angle on track two, you won’t see track one, until you cut the bits you don’t want out of track two.

So if the action is happening in the clip on track one, use the scissors to cut out some of track two to reveal it. If the action is happening on track two, simply leave it layered on top of track one, no cutting necessary.

Makes sense, I just have to figure out how to do all that. I'll play around with it and report back. Thanks for the help!

Works beautifully! This is what I was looking for. Thanks!!

i use the "clap" trick :

- start recording on camera-1
- start recording on camera-2

- clap loudly 2-3 times

- in post, sync the audio claps

i go as far as making sure that both cameras are recording :

- on the same colour profile
- the same frame-per-second ( i don't mind different ratios because i might want to crop
